Programs for Development and Impact (PDI) – Our Strategy for Promoting Junior Staff

Participants in our PDI programs learn by example how to apply new knowledge and skills, and at the same time, make measurable contributions to Sulzer Pumps success through actual work projects. Assisted by internal coaches, participants complete their own projects and study successful projects implemented by experienced senior managers to learn the details behind the Sulzer Pumps way of business.
